Choosing the right material is important in order to ensure that you’re getting the best quality at the best price, and that the material you choose is going to fit your needs.

Acrylic, also known as Plexiglass, is a great material for long term outdoor signs or sophisticated indoor signage; it is an extremely durable and versatile material with a glossy finish, giving it a sophisticated, polished look. Another great quality of acrylic that lends it to signs in the great outdoors is that colors won’t fade in the sunlight so you can rest easy knowing that you will have a high quality, upscale sign for years to come.



The installation process for acrylic signs can vary greatly depending on how you’re planning on using and displaying your sign. Some common practices include hanging, gluing, using velcro or double sided tape or applying suction cups.


Be careful when handling acrylic products, as they can chip easily and break or chip with impact.

Pro tips:

  • Mount individual acrylic letters to your wall or float the sign with spacers. This produces a shadow effect that adds depth and sophistication to your sign.
  • Since acrylic can be laser cut, you can custom design an acrylic sign to show your logo, a sophisticated decoration, or anything your heart desires.
  • Illuminate your sign by adding LED backlighting that creates a state of the art look and ensures that your sign won’t be missed no matter what time of the day it is.
  • Add a metal laminate to your acrylic signs to change the look and feel and give it a more modern touch.
